Ok, so this is a weird one, but for the record, American Express has been very cool to have while down in the islands. While virtually no where in the Bahamas accepts Amex outside of Nassau, the Amex services have been awesome.
For example, I had the Amex lady who answers the phone arrange for flights and accommodations for my mom and dad when they came to visit us. It doesn't matter how inane the request, the Amex people have always come through for us.
Not to mention, I collected enough free bonus mile point thingies to get several ultra cool new toys for the boat this year including three new trolling rods, a mega sweet volleyball, a gay looking orange yoga mat, an underwater camera, a new double wide grill and several other assorted completley decadent gadgets.
Definitely not a necessity, but its been nice to have.
